In addition to many losses, Corona has also taught us many good habits. Such as wearing a mask properly, washing hands with soap, using sanitizer to disinfect hands, covering the mouth with a handkerchief or elbow while sneezing, observing social distance, avoiding unhealthy food outside, etc.
Research says that diseases like pneumonia, flu and diarrhea have decreased due to following these habits during Corona. Corona is now very much under control, so the previous strictness in following the habits is no more. But many have now made it a regular practice.
Most important Corona is not completely gone. Scientists say that Corona will not go away, but will remain in the environment like ten other infectious diseases; Along with seasonal diseases, such as influenza, pneumonia, typhoid, dengue, diarrhoea, cholera, chicken pox or water spring, there are infectious diseases. So if good habits are followed all the time, we can keep many diseases apart from Corona at bay. Let’s try to know how the general rules of health protection keep us safe from all kinds of infectious diseases including corona.
Use of masks
Using a mask covering the nose and mouth protects the respiratory system and lungs. Face masks prevent the transmission of germs through the respiratory system. Masks are very effective in preventing viral common flu, influenza, measles, mumps, chicken pox and viral or bacterial pneumonia and tuberculosis. Masks add moisture to the air that enters our lungs when we breathe.
Moist breath helps to increase immunity in the body. High humidity inhibits the spread of bacterial infections in the respiratory system. Masks are also effective in controlling allergies and allergic diseases, such as asthma, by preventing exposure to dust from polluted environments. New research shows that air pollution is the cause of various diseases. Face mask should also be used to protect oneself from air pollution.
When sneezing and coughing, use a tissue or a handkerchief, if nothing else is available, cover your nose and mouth with folded elbows. Sneezing or spitting is called droplets. Many infectious diseases are spread from person to person through droplets. It takes time to develop these manners into habits. But those who have become accustomed to this good practice during the last two to two and a half years of the Corona epidemic, should always follow it. Teach them again and again as children get used to it. Once mastered, never make a mistake again for the rest of your life. In the future, new types of diseases will also be protected.
